There is always a risk to hire someone you have never worked with before. And even more risk, if in like this case he is working remotely in NY and me in Vancouver.
Zak has lots of experience working remotely and mentioned that in his introductory email. That made me feel more at ease.
Zak was the 14th applicant 24 hours after I posted an ad looking for motion designer.
There are four reasons why I hired him.
- He had a great reel.
- showed personality on his emails.
- was quick to respond to all my questions, and lastly.
- showed genuine interest on the project.
(Hint: If you ever want to apply for a position at Grumo, remember we look at all this criteria)
It turned out to be a great collaboration. He was fast to implement feedback really quickly and even made a couple of extra adjustments at no charge.
So if you are looking for a fast reliable motion designer, Zak is the guy to go! go Zak!
